Today I went to Books A Million. I did not intend to buy the whole store. Unfortunately, looking around my recliner, that seems to be exactly what I have done. According to my debit card this is what I have done. The fact that while in the bookstore I had to have Dan hold half of my books might have clued me in. Yet I couldn't stop. So I may as well share what I bought.
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil - John Berendt
Cane River - Lalita Tademy
The History of Love - Nicole Krauss
Haven - Kristi Cook
Chime - Franny Billingsley
Finnikin of the Rock - Melina Marchetta
Marcelo in the Real World - Francisco X. Stork
Everlasting - Angie Frazier
Falling Under - Gwen Hayes
Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks - Lauren Myracle
Babe in Boyland - Jody Gehrman
I know. It's a lot. I better get started. And before I even start on these I have a pile of about twenty in the bedroom. I'm running out of places to walk in there. Do you have any opinions about my choices?
Right now I am reading Sleight: Book One of the AVRA-K by Jennifer Sommersby. And it's really good. I'll have the review for that later on when I finish it. And then I have to finish the Study series by Maria V. Snyder. After that I have The Royal Dragoneers by M.R Mathias. I can't wait to read that one. If it's anywhere as good as The Sword and the Dragon then I'm sure I'll have a winner. There are a lot of great indie authors out there. I love reading indies. And I'm always open to reading indie novels.
So before I go, let me talk quickly about my indie review policy. Or any other book review policy. Basically what it comes down to is this. If your book sounds interesting to me and it sounds like something I would like I will read it. If I start to read it and I find that it's riddled with grammatical errors or bad writing, I'll stop. As far as time frame goes..anything that someone asks me to review takes precedent over the books I choose to read myself. Sometimes though, the list of books I have to review for authors gets ridiculously long and I have to break in-between to read something I want to. I'm sure you understand this. In order for this hobby to stay interesting and fun for me I have to do it the way I need to. This policy may change in the future. Who knows?
Any questions about anything? Ask down there in the comments. Thanks guys!!
